Kellyanne Conway argued Monday that actress Meryl Streep is bringing out people’s worst instincts by using Sunday night’s Golden Globe awards ceremony to lash out at Trump.

“I’m concerned that somebody with a platform like Meryl Streep is also I think inciting people’s worst instincts when she won’t get up there and say, ‘I didn’t like it, but let’s try to support him and try to support him and see where we can find some common ground with him,'” said Conway, Trump’s senior counselor, on Fox News.

She also said Trump has tried to reach out to both sides ever since he became president.

“The moment he won, he said I’m going to be the president for all people,” she said.

Streep criticized Trump for mocking a reporter with a physical disability. But Conway criticized her for not mentioning another incident involving the torture of a white disabled man by four black people last week.

“I didn’t hear her weigh in … to give a shout out to the mentally challenged boy who last week was tortured live on Facebook for half an hour by four young African-American adults who were screaming racial and anti-Trump expletives and forcing him to put his head in toilet water,” she said.

“So, I’d like to hear from her today if she wants to come and continue her platform on behalf of the disabled,” Conway said.
